CreateADOObject - Microsoft Data Access Components

Recommended Posts

A user recently saw this error message the first time he started up RockWorks15:

exception class : Exception

exception message : Error creating object. Please verify that the Microsoft Data Access Components 2.1 (or later) have been properly installed.

main thread ($11b8):

005d4662 +042 RockWorks15.exe ADODB 1144 +11 CreateADOObject

005d5716 +03a RockWorks15.exe ADODB 1540 +2 TADOConnection.Create

This is an unusual error since these MDAC components which RockWorks requires for its database are built into the Windows operating system. To solve this problem:

1. Search for the file "msado15.dll" on your computer. This file usually resides in "C:\Program Files\Common Files\system\ado" (or "Program Files (x86)" for 64-bit systems).

2. If this file is present, then it may just need to be registered in the Windows system. Here's how:

a. Go to the Windows Start button and into the Search prompt right above the button, type in: cmd and press <Enter>. This will start up a command window.

ii. After the cursor, type in the following:

Regsvr32.exe "C:\Program Files\Common Files\system\ado\Msado15.dll"

and press <Enter>. Please be sure to leave a space after the ".exe" and to include the quotation marks. Use "Program Files (x86)" for 64-bit systems.

If this DLL is successfully registered, you should see a message about a "DllRegisterServer.... succeeded". If you see this, then try restarting RockWorks15.
